Alec Baer scored early in the third to cut the Pats’ lead by one and Joel Hamilton notched his first as a Giant with just over five minutes to go in regulation to tie the game at four.
Hamilton, the third star of the game, took a tripping penalty 57 seconds into extra time and Leier completed his hat trick a minute later to lift the Pats to a 5-4 victory.
